Default Roadtrek 210 Popular Shower Mod

We like the full wet bath but taking a shower inside the bathroom was too tight for me. We have no plans to use the aisle shower as it is too much trouble to take up the carpets, remove the floor pan and drain, etc. A simple way to extend the size of the bath shower is to use a 1/8-inch fiberglass rod that I got from a kite store. I put plastic protectors on the ends of the fiberglass rods. You need to look at the pictures to follow along with the description. I drilled a hole in the shower head holder for one end of the rod. I attached a 3M stick-on wall hook on the right side wall of the bathroom. I drilled a hole in the hook to hold the other end of the rod. I also use the hook as storage to hold a metal spring rod that we use for holding wet towels for drying. The rod pushes the shower curtain out enough to give me elbow room to take a shower standing up. Just be careful to not push the bottom of the curtain past the lip, otherwise water will spill onto the aisle floor.

We also cut the shower curtain into two sections as we donít need the full width since we donít use the aisle shower setup. This has worked great as we can pull one shower curtain section out to all the way to go across the aisle to create a private dressing room when dressing after a shower, or as a privacy curtain when sleeping at night. Only one curtain section is needed in the bathroom doorway to keep water in the bathroom.

Good, practical and cheap solution. Advanced RV offers a flip down bar in its' showers that does a similar job of holding the upper shower curtain out for more room. They use a two-section door where the bottom half stays closed to keep the lower part of the shower curtain inside the shower.

I'll bet your solution costs a lot less.
